We love Thai food and were really looking forward to trying Naperville's newest offering.

Major disappointment. Our first time at any new Thai restaurant we always try certain basic, traditional Thai dishes like satay, Pad Thai, etc. If they do these dishes well we will return and explore the menu further.

The satay was that broiled processed chicken kind that more and more Thai restaurants are serving in order to save a buck instead of serving actual pieces of marinated chicken on a skewer that is freshly grilled. Looks processed, tastes processed, smells processed. Yuck! We can buy the same frozen processed chicken skewers at Trader Joe's so what is the point?

Pad Thai... well if Thai Medallion can't get this traditional dish right it doesn't bode well for them in our view. Hands down I've got to say this was absolutely the worst Pad Thai I've ever tasted anywhere. Looked wrong (color), tasted wrong (flavor)... and the chopped peanuts, shredded carrots, etc. were no where to be found.

Service was polite and friendly, about average for what you would expect in any family run Thai restaurant.

The interior has been refreshed from the Italian place that was there previously though mostly just paint and no substantial investment in build out or furnishings which means it was done on the cheap and looks it.

With so many other really good Thai restaurant choices in Naperville, Thai Medallion simply doesn't measure up to the competition. To make it in this out of the way location plagued with parking issues Thai Medallion really needs to get its kitchen act together.
